One of USA Today’s “5 Books Not to Miss”
Say Chanel and we picture luxury, class, wealth. But THE CHANEL SISTERS grew up in anything but. Set from 1897 to 1921, the story takes us though the humble beginnings and ambitious rise of the sisters.
Author Judithe Little shares some of the extensive research she did to create authentic characters. We discuss how their upbringing influenced the Chanel brand. We explore where and why Judithe took creative license. Why she told the story from the point of view of younger sister, Antoinette. And what Judithe wishes she’d known when she started out.
